About this property

Entire place

You'll have the entire home to yourself and will only share it with other guests in your party.

Cottage / Retreat above the Thuringian Forest

You live in a lovingly restored, about 300 year old village smithy, sunny at about 500 meters above the Thuringian Forest.

Knobelsdorf with its 34 inhabitants is centrally located within a hiking, gliding and cycling area. From here you discover Thuringia from the Hohenwarte Reservoir to the Schwarzatal.

On about 80 m² living space is plenty of space for up to five people. The apartment has a large, comfortable living area, a kitchen, bathroom with shower u. Bathtub.
The living room

There is a parking space for the car, a decent supply of firewood and water & a few supplies in case you are snowing;)
Seriously - it is our house, so it is equipped and you are allowed to feel as welcome and at home as we do.
In the kitchen everything is available what is needed; from utensils to basic ingredients. Our guest room has a beautiful bunk bed (80 x 2.00 m.) And a desk. The bedroom is equipped with a double bed (1.80 x 2.00 m.) And in the bathroom you can relax either in the bath with a view over the valley or in the 1.20 x 1.20 m large shower.
Towels & bed linen are of course included in the price - as well as we, who will help you with words and deeds to make your stay as nice as possible.
Access for guests

You should feel at home! Of course, you have access to all rooms and always remain undisturbed. No one else is in the house except you.

However, the attic and cellar are still not suitable for children and due to their tools - which you do not notice at all in the living area.

And do not worry, no one works it while you recover!

If, contrary to expectations, there is a technical problem, our technician will come to you immediately.
Other important information

To and from Saalfeld a bus leaves several times a day. Parking is available directly at the house, the trails lead practically past the house.

Here there is nature & peace!

Tuesdays comes the bakery car and on Wednesdays the mobile Aunt Emma. The nearest shops (Norma, Rewe, etc.) are right down the hill and of course in the nearby Saalfeld city center.

If something has been forgotten - the bus runs regularly, the stop is diagonally opposite the house, our team is also available to help and advice.

The prices include VAT.
